Join Elisheva Carlebach, Deborah Dash Moore, Dara Horn, and Itamar Borochov, in a discussion of Confronting Modernity, 17501880, vol. 6 of The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization, edited by Elisheva Carlebach.

Hear voices rarely included in Jewish culture, such as that of Roza, a multilingual Jewish midwife and that of a Jewish soldier during the American Civil War. Learn about the powerful religious music inspiring artists of today. Explore passionate Jewish debates on all sides of religious and political issues, including such fundamental matters as private property and the institution of slavery. 

What happens to our understanding of Jewish civilization when those who are often marginalized move to the center of the story? Discover the unexpected breadth of Jewish culture.

Confronting Modernity, 17501880, vol. 6 of The Posen Library of Jewish Culture and Civilization, is a landmark project to collect and translate primary sources from a period "in which every aspect of Jewish life underwent the most profound changes to have occurred since antiquity, as the editor Elisheva Carlebach describes it. This wide-ranging collection includes a diverse selection of literature, music, art, theater, and more created by Jews around the world, translated from more than a dozen languages.

Please Note: Patrons who are sharing a computer to view the program need only reserve one ticket.
